first default on the nation's bills. raising it does not give the government authority to take on more spending, things like social security and medical benefits. chuck todd. >> what a complete wasted weekend of the leaders. amazing how things had been moving starting thursday night into friday, you had another meeting of senate republicans and the president. you had some back and forths and looked like things were moving along. then all of a sudden everything came grinding to a hate. some of it harry reid feeling emboldened by the numbers punishing republicans particularly in our poll and house republicans essentially walking away and leaving it in the hands of senate republicans. we have two paths. path one this negotiation going on in the senate. maybe they come up with an agreement that gets us through
january. path two, if that fails is the house caving in at the last minute and passing just a quick six-week extension and then we'll do all this again a couple weeks before thanksgiving. >> nbc's tracie potts live in washington. can lawmakers reach a deal. >> reporter: that seems to be the million dollar question. option three is they don't reach a deal and there's an historic default with the government still shut down. a small group of senators are trying to prevent that. they seem optimistic. a number spoke out and seem optimistic they can prevent this from happening on thursday and buy some time for more negotiation but there is still a lot of finger-pointing going on in washington. >> if we had engaged in the negotiation and there was an impasse i'd say there's fault on both sides, the republicans in the senate would not allow us to go to a budget conference to
debate these. >> the greatest act of bipartisanship has been republicans and democrats alike overpromising and overspending and so, yeah, there's fault on both sides. >> so thursday is the day we won't have enough cash on hand to pay our bills but not necessarily the day we default. the congressional budget office says it could take until the end of the month before america fails to pay a bill on time. >> we do appreciate it. the frustration is spilling out on to the streets. protesters on both sides express their contempt for the government shutdown, but the far larger turnout they toppled and stacked barricades. some protest cut them apart and carried them to the white house and some protesters squared off with police. among the high-profile attendees, former vice presidential nominee sarah palin. she says these a using it as
pawns in a political game. also there texas senator ted cruz. british police hope new images will reignite the investigation into the disappearance of madeleine mccann. they saw this man when she was 3. they believe he could be the key to unlocking the investigation. madeleine's disappearance captured the world when she vanished. her parents went to have dinner leaving madeleine, her brother and sister sleeping just 100 yards away and denied any involvement saying they are still hopeful. to india where the cleanup is beginning after phailin came on shore. it was a category 4 storm bigger than the country of france. it's being called asia's hurricane katrina. entire villages gone people wondering what's next. the last time a storm this size hit the country 10,000 people died but this time more than 800,000 heeded warnings to seek higher ground. this morning the death toll

for the second straight year nearly 58 million americans who receive social security are likely to see only a small bump in benefit checks come january. according to an analysis by the associated press, preliminary figures suggest an increase of roughly 1.5%. one of the smallest since automatic increases were adopted in 1975. the increase is tied to september inflation numbers which have been delayed by the government shutdown. and now for your "first look" at business we turn to bertha coombs. >> good morning. the futures pointing to a down open. a sharply down open as those senate talks to avert a deal or for a deal to avert a possible u.s. debt default appear to be stalls. christine le guard says a default could cause a massive disruption to the global economy. xerox says it quickly fixed a glitch that caused an outage in the food stamp debit program but the system was not fully

>> i never thought about not playing, you know. it was all about this, having the strength, praying the strength to play and get through and help my team. >> the play of the day might be a classic clutch move by tom brady. eight seconds left he throws this touchdown pass pore the win. 30- 30-27. and the football folly of the day brought to you by seattle. free safety chris muragos tries improv that goes wrong fast. he returns it for a touchdown. what a way to end the first half. nbc's bill karins now with your columbus day forecast. >> the new england sports fans are very happy this morning. you know, the red sox won late,
late last night. >> and you? >> no, i'm not a new england sports fan at all. it's well known. all the people that work with our morning joe will be jumping up and down. i know. not you and i. the middle of the country we are watching a lot of heavy rain and thunderstorms up through the northern plain, big storm system unlike the one two weeks ago. doesn't have quite as much cold air to work with. there will be know in wyoming at the higher elevations but not like the blizzard of two weeks ago. rain left over around ft. worth and dallas. minor travel trouble there. the eastern seaboard is looking okay. from philadelphia northward, a really beautiful weekend but around d.c. and virginia and maryland and delaware that storm kept us kind of cloudy and drizzly with periods of rain all weekend long. much improved weather today. d.c. should be 70 and mostly sunny to partly cloudy. all the stormy weather in the middle of the country. should stay nice. it looks like probably until
now here's your first look at scrambled politics. texas senator ted cruz won the straw poll with 42% of the vote. conservative doctor ben carson and rick santorum tied for second. maryland attorney general douglas gansler is in trouble. the ag often directors troopers to turn on sirens and speed through traffic. the democratic candidate for governor often flipped the switches himself. texas congressman louis gohmert still doesn't know if he will support the debt ceiling. if the limit isn't extended the president should be thrown out of office and says a u.s.

leaders of the grand canyon and mt. mushmore struck similar deals. apparently a special rule was enacted in house by republicans on october 1st. saturday maryland congressman chris van holland challenges it with jason chafen. take a look. >> the rules committee under the rules of the house changed the standing rules of the house to take away the right of any member to move to vote to open the government and gave that right exclusively to the republican leader. is that right. >> the house adopted that resolution. >> joining me "the washington post" reporter david nakamura. good morning. so, explain what happened here and how this rule prevents anyone except for republican majority leader eric cantor from bringing a bill to the floor to fund the government and end the shutdown. >> this is something republicans wanted to do before the government shut down because they wanted to keep control of this debate. as you know the democrats and
president obama saying, look, the senate passed a bill. let's put it on the floor of the house. it will pass with a majority. the republicans don't want to do it so passed this resolution. that you just showed the clip about to say only the house majority can do it. that is what is holding this up. democrats are keeping the pressure on saying let's bring it to a vote. it won't happen until they're comfortable with it. >> where do we go? >> look, it's been looking more likely it will go down to the wire as these things always have the past two years. this is the fourth time we were doing it. obviously the stakes are higher and the government remains shut down. it's a big problem and you have now the senate majority leader harry reid and minority leader mitch mick connell negotiating with some extent to each other and saying, hey, let's rise about this and try to get a big deal but, you know, the devil is in the details. right now they talked over the weekend but still far apart and i think you're looking at this
going down to wednesday night, possibly and really each side sort of staring at each down to the wire. it's making obviously the markets nervous and other, as well. >> i'll ask you a question about the washington redskins. you're there in washington in the fish bowl where the faithful are. where they live and breathe. >> the owner says the redskin fans don't necessarily favor name change. the president said this within the past two weeks that he himself would think about changing the name at the owned the team. that was a big moment in the debate and i think a lot are hoping they change but no sign that he will do so. he had said the name is here to
say. pressure could continue but nfl might step in. >> nice to see you. >> you too. headlines on this incredible bridge collapse all caught on tape coming up next.
